Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)

Evergreen City of India

Situated among a collection of low hills that lead up to the coastline, state capital Thiruvananthapuram acts as a base for exploration of the southern tip of the country. With a wealth of popular beaches and resort towns in the surrounding area, Thiruvananthapuram tourism largely revolves around a number of day trips to the coast, yet the urban scene has plenty to offer as well. Colonial British architecture and storied temples remains particularly cherished aspects of the fairly modest city center, while the restaurants, bars, and bakeries offer a laid-back account of life down south. Our India day trip planning tool combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.

Where to stay in Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)

Ranging from boutiques set in colonial-era buildings to side street youth hostels with dormitory-style rooms, the choice throughout the city covers a wide range.

Nearby beach resorts, such as Varkala and Kovalam, rank high on visitors' lists, with abundances of boutique hotels, beach huts, and resorts.
